Robin Scouras Posted 5 months ago What is the greatest threat to human civilization? The potential health risk of GMO foods consumed by humans is not such an outrageous claim here. GMO crops engineered to contain within their DNA pesticides that can not subsequently be removed from the crop are consumed by hundreds of millions every day. Since the advent of GMO, there has been considerable increase in autism, cancer, and immune-related illness. I don't think that the GMO foods alter the DNA of the consumer. I do believe that if there is a link between the food and the health concerns, that the problem speaks to a culture and power structure that prefers convenience and low cost to health. We've seen agricultural business wreak havoc on environmental, animal, and human health. Why is it so hard to believe that destroying the food supply could be a significant risk to humanity?
